The only way to prove what's

The only way to prove what's in your head, is to record it publicly, right? Just because you said it was in your head, doesn't mean a damn thing. However, if I have a thought and record it publicly before others, that means, according to public record, I (1) had the idea first or (2) had the idea and took the initiative to make it public record. Hence, I declare that idea my intellectual property.

Same applies to a lot of incorporeal property. Just because something is incorporeal doesn't mean it can't be "owned."
